9/23/04 "GOOD DAYS AHEAD"

Sorry we haven't updated since last week. Cass is doing well. Like I said before, he is a fighter. He's slowly being taken off the medication that temporarily paralyzes him, but he is still on some pain meds. He is awake and tries to take the ventilator off. Monday morning was the first time he was awake in a week and when he heard my voice, he started kicking and smiling. It lifted my spirit to see that he knew who I was. I still haven't held him, but I'm just happy that he is awake. Yesterday he had surgery to have a feeding port put into his stomach. The opening sits on the outside of his stomach, goes through his stomach to his small intestine so the food bypasses his stomach directly. This will help, hopefully, on discouraging the reflux and the aspiration. He looks to be slowly gaining weight, so this week has been a good week. I feel comfort from our Father in Heaven knowing he is with us and has not forgotten us. He loves us and is blessing us with this sweet baby, and the trials we go through will only make us stronger. Thank you for helping us get stronger, and our baby.
Love,
Cass' mom:)
